Re: Eating Food Well Past Sell By Date

During the lockdown I decided to rearrange our cellar. When I used to drive to England I'd stock up on all the goodies you can't normally find here, and in the tidying up found quite a few old expired items in the back of the shelves.

Marmite from 2008 - 12 years ago
Mint sauce from 2005 - 15 years ago
Heinz Beans from 1999 - 21 years ago
Heinz Tomato Soup from 2002 - 18 years ago
Fray Bentos Steak and Ale Pie from 2006* - 14 years ago
Corned Beef, date unknown as label missing, at least circa 2002, but still tasted good. - 18 years ago

Anyway, not being one to waste good food, I've been opening and eating the food, and had no ill effects whatsoever. Anyone else come across and eaten "expired" food?
WTF... surely this has to be a wind-up?

if not, then it's Darwinism at it's finest.
